I have the same unit and had a similar problem. If yours is the same as mine, look at the top of the water heater unit. The center spigot is for the for the how water outflow which is connected to surgical type rubber tubing. The hot water eventually dried out the tubing and it cracks, causing it to leak. I had to cut out the decayed portion and replace it. Franke sent me a replacement kit at no charge but I did replace the fitting on top of the unit. The fitting is a standard nipple that any HW store should carry. Mine is a female-to-female reducer that then mates to a nylon barbed fitting which the tubing goes into. Importantly the Franke supplied kit has nylon ratcheting hose clamps that keep the tubing in place as well as a barbed union with hose clamps to join to the exisiting hose feed (to the faucet).
Hope this helps! I'm now struggling with the hot water tap leaking after using it. It seems to stop after a while but it drips for some time. If you can help me there that would be great!

SOURCE: drip pan
the drip pan is built into the bottom and dont come out ,,, check the drain pipe to make sure its still sticking in the pan ,,,, also check the bottom inside of your freezer, drain may be stopped up and causing water to come out front edge of door / larry

SOURCE: Leaking Kitchen Tap
I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout
if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)
turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink
remove the set screw and lift off the lever
at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place
temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking
if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install
If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink
once you have determined which it is (hot or cold)
take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise
be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem
remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end
take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)
go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut
install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks

The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.
